The Story

The Wattcher

Marcel Wanders designed an energymeter for Innovaders.The Wattcher consists of a sensor, a sending unit (both placed in the meter closet on any electricity meter) and a display which tells you how much energy you are using at this moment, during a day or compared to your target usage. Everything can be easily self-installed.
By switching appliances on or off you can see how much they add to your electricity consumption
